We are a service organization dedicated to benefit our member school societies by providing organizational, administrative, and educational resource assistance.
Our member schools are located in Attercliffe, Chatham, Etobicoke, Fergus, Guelph, Hamilton, Komoka, Millgrove, Mount Hope, London, Ottawa, Orangeville, Owen Sound, Smithville, and Woodbridge. Membership currently includes 14 elementary schools and 3 secondary schools. These schools range in size from 21 students to just over 400, and their combined enrolment is over 2,500 students.
While the range of institutional sizes among our members can make the service needs diverse, what these schools hold in common is the desire to assist parents in Reformed church communities respond to their baptismal vows also in their children’s formal education. God’s infallible Word as confessed in the Three Forms of Unity and professed in the Canadian Reformed Churches is the basis of our organization.
We publish and distribute educational curricula, studies, and reports for our members. We promote teaching as a career as well as the professional development of teachers and school administrators. Additionally, we want to help Reformed churches to establish schools in areas where there is no school to which Reformed parents can send their children.
Four or five times a year we host a Membership Meeting. This is a time when school board members are able to meet with colleagues from other Reformed school societies to hear about the activities of the LCRSS. Membership meetings also provide a space for board members to ask questions, share items of interest, and speak about best practices.
